Why Travelers Choose This Tour

You go off the beaten track on this excursion to lovely and light-filled Tuscany. The lunch, wine and views are all amazing. Don't forget to pick up some Pecorino cheese in Pienza!
Board your luxury coach, and travel from Rome to Tuscany with its scenic, rolling hills. Your first stop is Montepulciano, a town renowned for its fine wine and views. The Renaissance hilltown is best-known for its production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a full-bodied red wine. Learn about it on a walking tour, and discover highlights such as the Florence-style clock tower, the cathedral with its yet-to-be-finished façade, medieval wine cellars and the old town walls.

After a break for photos, travel further into Tuscany to explore the area around Montalcino. Step inside Sant’ Antimo Abbey, and then soak up the vistas that stretch beyond the vineyards.

Hear how the local vineyards produce the acclaimed Brunello di Montepulciano wine, and then sample a glass for yourself over a 3-course lunch at a local farm. In traditional Tuscan style, the menu features fresh farm-grown produce as well as a selection of local wine.

From the farm, travel on to Pienza, one of the region’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, enjoy up to 45 minutes of free time to explore. The layout of the town was created by Pope Pius II, who wanted to change the look of his birth town. Admire the historic center, which stays true to the pope’s vision, and gaze at the fine architecture that abounds. If you are a fan of food, check the shops for pecorino cheese, arguably Pienza’s most prized product.

Your day trip finishes with your coach journey back from Tuscany to Rome.

There were five people in our group and each one of us loved the tour. Our guide, Anestis and driver, Boris, were very informative and we all had a good time together. Our stop in Florence was breathtaking and enjoyed the statue of David. We had lunch in a pizzeria in Florence and then went to Pisa where we were only there for a short time, but it was plenty of time for pictures.

This trip was amazing. Our guide was Kyle who was fantastic, her knowledge of Roman history was outstanding. I felt that this really put things in perspective. The lunch at the Tuscany winery was great it was 3 courses and I'm never had better food. I've already recommended it to my group on Facebook and I've told everyone was a great tour this is...I will be coming back for other tours and I hope I get Kyle!! It your thinking about doing a side tour I highly recommend this one. I bought all my gifts for back home on this tour...

This was a grand day. The weather started out a bit brisk, but finished nicely. Our guide was outstanding. Kylie was most considerate of all the travellers, and very informative throughout the day. There is nothing more I would have expected her to do. And, our bus driver was safe, timely, and courteousIf I were designing this trip for myself, I would have limited it to two towns - the two M's. I felt rushed at the winery. I would have preferred more time (and more wine) to savour and enjoy that experience.And, I would have liked to sample some wine in Montepulciano to note the differences in the two areas.That means I must return.Thanks for a fine day.

This tour was absolutely fantastic and would recommend it to anyone visiting Rome and who doesn’t want to burn days traveling to Tuscany or Florence. My girlfriend and I were on a week long trip to Italy and knew we had to hit up Tuscany but did not want to have to move hotels to Florence or Tuscany just to see wine country. Therefore we booked this day trip which gave us everything we wanted to see from Tuscany without having to spend a night out there. From start to finish, outstanding. Our tour guide Jon was an absolute high light of our day. He was INCREDIBLY KNOWLEDGEABLE. He kept things light hearted and so easy to follow. He was American born so no trouble understanding him whatsoever. He was amazing from start to finish. He went out of his way to give us every small tip and Rome recommendation before we left and was simply a great part of our day. The wine tasting and lunch was spectacular. The tour of Montepulciano was also off the charts. Tuscany truly came alive on this tour and we couldn’t believe how much ground we covered from the start of the day. Yes it’s a super long day and your leg will feel it but we still had enough energy when we got back to Rome to take on one of Jon’s restaurant recommendations. By far this tour was a huge bang for your buck and truly the only way to see Tuscany without killing too much of your precious time in Italy. Because we all know there just never is enough of that when you’re here. Prego!!!

If you would like a day away from foot pounding the streets of Rome, a trip to the Tuscany countryside becons wIth this all day tour. Our guide, Andy, took us through not only the Tuscan scenery but also the history of the region as it related to the rise and fall of the Roman Empire and the emergence of the renaissance culture of the region. His lessons were both informative and amusing and he was always willing to engage individually with his flock to answer specific questions. The lunch and wine sampling were excellent as were the local guides in Montepulciano.
